FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Many eyes will be on the sky this morning as a partial solar eclipse comes into view, though residents in the Peace Region might be missing out.

Residents of Victoria will see about 90 per cent of the sun blocked out, while about 86 per cent of the glowing orb will be hidden from view in Vancouver. In Fort St. John, approximately 62 percent of the sun will be obscured by the moon transiting in front of it. The eclipse is scheduled to begin at approximately 9:22 this morning, with the partial eclipse peaking just before 10:30 a.m.

However, the crescent sun might not be completely visible for all Peace Region residents. Environment Canada is forecasting a mix of sun and cloud in Fort St. John today.

South of the border, people along the so-called path of totality from Oregon to South Carolina will see a total solar eclipse, where the moon will completely cover the sun, blacking out the sky and turning day to night, if only momentarily.
